Triticale (Triticosecale Wittmack) is the first cereal of an agricultural crop that is produced scientifically by human & used for both purposes as human food and& livestock feed with; that has lots of health benefits. The present study was focused on development of product i.e., baby powder using triticale, by varying the levels of triticale at the incorporation of 20%, 25% & 30%. The product was subjected to sensory evaluation, Baby powder with 30% triticale was found to be best accepted with scores of 9.0, 8.8, 8.8, 9.0 and 9.0 for appearance, texture, colour, flavour and overall acceptability. The proximate composition of the third treatment was found to contain 10.22, 1.76 gm, 13.18 gm, and 1.20 gm percent of moisture, ash, protein and iron respectively.
